Institutional cultural policy plays the decisive role in formation of dominant tendencies, methods and status of art creation. New methods of creation, presentation and distribution of cultural product and creative cooperation between all participants of cultural data exchange (authors, audience, organizers, and theorists) demand new institutional strategies and tactics. It is necessary to establish electronic art centers, work out educational programs and projects to finance and support creative initiatives in this field, since more and more artists and other cultural activists try to find the most effective method of solving their creative tasks with the help of new technologies. However, art community often criticizes methods used by universities, foundations and some other organizations. Open discussion of initiatives ‘from below’ and methods of their support ‘on the top’ is the focus of reports and discussions of this panel.
